§ 68. Mr. Baxter
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in view of the increasing number of contested by-elections, he will make arrangements to allow the serving men and women who are away from their constituencies to record their votes as absent voters?
§ The Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department (Mr. Peake)
I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given on 14th October last to a Question by the hon. Member for Denbigh (Sir H. Morris-Jones) in which I summarised the facilities available for members of the Forces to vote as absent voters.
§ Mr. Baxter
Does not my hon. Friend think it time now for all electors to vote in open contests and put an end to this procession of unscarred by-election victors into this House?
